Introducing: Laurel Beard

There’s a new challenge site coming in 2013! If you love getting crafty with amazing inspiration and a chance to win awesome prizes then THIS is the challenge site for you!

We are slowly introducing you to our DT, or as we like to call them, "Pin Heads"  here on the blog.  We are all getting ready for our very first challenge on January 8, 2013.  Please welcome me in announcing our second Design Team member, Laurel Beard.


My name is Laurel and I live in sunny Florida where I have lived my entire life. I am short and love to laugh. I am afraid of heights but am married to a Navy Pilot. We have a gorgeous 7 year old son, with another on the way in March!!! I was introduced to stamping a few years ago when I wanted to make a teacher's gift. I created the most horrific, and I mean horrific, altered clipboard on the face of the planet. I like to think I have improved since then! I would define myself as a very clean and simple designer, rarely using a lot of embellishments on one card. My favorite techniques are embossing and incorporating distress inks into my projects. I have a love of water coloring. I also loving building patterns and backgrounds out of stamps! In addition to crafting, I am crazy about APPLE products and Coca Cola stuff (I'm a collector).  You can view my projects on my blog, Flickr or over on my youtube channel.  

You will not want to miss out on any of our challenges. We have some amazing pins to inspire your crafty projects. We all have been working very hard behind the scenes and have the entire year of challenges ready to go!!!  We are also very thrilled and grateful to have awesome, and I mean AWESOME, sponsors offering up prizes for every SINGLE challenge. Some big names are coming, so don’t wait!
